About the authors

We are both active bloggers at www.benlinders.com and lmsgoncalves.com. On our blogs we share our experiences on several agile and lean topics including retrospectives.

During the years we have conducted many different kinds of retrospectives. We think that practicing different exercises helps to develop your own personal toolbox with retrospective exercises and get more value out of them
